Archaeological studies never cease to amaze and they just found a never before discovered mosaic floor from 1,500 years ago. It is hard to believe that this type of precision could be constructed with the tools and technology available at the time,:
“The ancient city of Doliche (near modern-day Dülük), which was part of the province of Syria in Roman times, lies at the fringes of the Turkish metropolis of Gaziantep today,” said team member Prof. Engelbert Winter, of the University of Münster, Germany.
Apparently this was part of some type of high end vacation venue at that time. Here is a bit more information on this awesome discovery:
“The most outstanding discovery of our excavations is a high-quality mosaic floor in a splendid complex of buildings with a court enclosed by columns that originally covered more than 100 sq. meters,” added Dr Michael Blömer, also of the University of Münster.
According to the team, the large mosaic graced the floor of a luxurious urban villa some 1,500 years ago.
